I've been playing random games I have on vita. Thoughts:
1) Wow, God of War is boring. I remember that hydra fight being way cooler (hits up google)...12 years ago.
2) Kick & Fennick is a fun mechanic. Played a few hours, but doubt I'll finish.
3) Gravity Rush was a fun mechanic for a few hours. Beat what I assume is the first boss (had a big life bar). Don't think I'll play more.
4) Damn, XCOM is still really good. I guess it's XCOM Plus, which has the enemy within update (which I haven't played). It changes things a bit. Going to keep playing, probably finish the story.
5) Rogue Legacy is still a lot of fun.
6) Sonic Racing Transformed (or whatever it's called) is not good. I liked the first one on 360.
7) Titan Souls was kind of interesting, but I got bored after the first set of bosses.
8) Dragon's Crown seems like it would be a fun 2D brawler, but I'm not in the mood.


I have these games to try: Level 22, Persona 4 Golden, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Severed

I have these games I know I'm going to play: Zero Escape 2 & 3, Danganronpa 1 & 2

In other platform news:
1) Almost finished with DMC1 on Hard (been playing PS3 while on the treadmill), so 30 minutes at a time.
2) Cosmic Star Heroine has been quite fun so far (I like Zeboyd Games and 16-bit RPGs though), and knowing it's only 10-15 hours (so bite-sized for an RPG) makes me feel like I'll finish it.

Can't wait for Destiny 2.

I let my PSN account lapse when they upped the price, but I picked up a card last night so I'd be ready for D2. I'll be looking for groups to play with on both PS and PC.

I hit Diamond rank for the first time in Rocket League last night!!!! Woohoo!!!! Now just hoping I can hang onto it long enough to get the 12 win reward unlock before almost inevitably dropping back down to Platinum rank.

Finally got around to playing this, and had to go out and get a pro-controller.

The switch controllers shoulder buttons are so close, it is hard to use comfortably.

The game though is definitely a winner.

Going to download the beta on my computer, and see how badly it gags on it....

I got it for $5 on GoG, but just don't really game on my computer. So, I spent $15 and bought Undertale today. It's cross-buy and seems like the Vita will be a great way to play it. Gonna start it up for the first time over lunch I think.

I beat Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap yesterday. For an old GameBoy Advance game, it's pretty great!

I played it on my New Nintendo 2DS XL, which I bought last week to replace my old regular-sized 3DS. I'm really enjoying the increased screen space... it makes a huge difference.

There's a plethora of RPGs to play on the 3ds system. I don't see myself getting bored with it anytime soon. It fits great with my evening routine too - I can chill on the couch next to my wife instead of being in the other room on the PC.

Next up: Xenoblade Chronicles

New poster here. Looking for groups for when Destiny 2 comes out on the PS4. Never got a chance to do any of the raids in D1 and would like a better D2 experience.
